Rhodocollybia butyracea? Were the caps greasy?
I don't think the gills are crowded enough for that - John does specifically call the gills "distant".

Cortinarius trivialis going mad on the lawn
I hope this doesn't come across as rude Nelly, but are you 100% sure that's what it is? . . . . a close up & underside shots would be useful.

Re: Woodwax?

Thanks to you both for your comments - waxcaps in woods, nothing is easy in mycology is it! I have another picture of the gills from a more faded specimen if it helps, and also the spores. Didn't smell it but understand now it smells of burnt rubber if it's h. laeta. My memory of it was it was so s...

Re: Woodwax?

Gill attachment doesn't look right for Gliophorus psittacinus . . . I was thinking along similar lines, but that the hint of grey at stipe apex suggests G. laetus (=Hygrocybe laeta). Can't see the gill edge clearly enough, which is a pity.

Fungi on rosebay

This thread has been a bit dormant recently. So here's a prompt for people to remember that herbaceous stems provide a good source of interesting fungi - right the way through the year but particularly in the late autumn to spring period. Remembering a find from over a decade ago (6th Jan 2007) I th...

Re: Bjerkandera

Thes easiest way to separate the two is by looking at a section cut vertically down through a basidiome. That said I'm sure this is B. adusta.

Re: Saccobolus depauperatus

Hi Dave
looking at those cells towards the bottom right, they look a bit moss-like - could it be the seta of a moss? The surface doesn't look quite right for a hair. Just a thought.

Re: Entoloma sp - dark blue pinkgill

Was it growing on wood? With colours like that the likely candidate is Entoloma euchroum.
